Evening Event: Proctorio’s Time Machine Quarantine – A Welcome Bash Going Back To The 80’s
Dance yourself clean in the time machine with Proctorio at the Atlantic Dance Hall on Disney’s Boardwalk. ”Don’t be such a square!” Join us for an evening of drinks and rewind back in time with the 80’s music you know and love. Proctorio invites you to enjoy a fun night on Disney’s Boardwalk Tuesday evening following a day of pre-conference events at the most bodacious conference in town – OLC Accelerate 2018!
We’ll be hitting the dance floor at 88 Miles per hour while, “Great Scott!”, the Illuminations Fireworks can be seen from the Dance Hall. It’s going to be electric! (1.21 gigawatts worth).
Join us, starting at 7pm (immediately following early registration and the exhibit hall preview), at Disney’s Atlantic Dance Hall. You must be 21+ to enter. Conference attendees must show their attendee badge to receive a wristband to enter. Wristbands are limited and can be obtained at Proctorio’s booth during the exhibit hall preview or at the door of the event. If you arrive at the hotel after badge pickup closes, simply show the dance hall door staff your OLC Accelerate registration confirmation email as proof of attendance to receive your wristband. Dress up optional, but best 80s attire is eligible for a prize!
